The Zero Hour  was a 1973-74 radio drama anthology series hosted by Rod Serling.  With tales of mystery, adventure and suspense, the program aired in stereo for two seasons. Some of the scripts were written by Serling.  Originally placed into syndication on September 3, 1973, the original format featured five-part dramas broadcast Monday through Friday with the story coming to a conclusion on Friday. Including commercials, each part was approximately 30 minutes long.   In 1974, still airing five days a week, the program changed to a full story in a single 30-minute installment with the same actor starring throughout the week in all five programs. The series ended on July 26, 1974.  See more on Wikipedia.

Thanks (I guess) for the "special appearance" of Big Anklevich and Rish Outfield from the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.
